Our Mission Statement
St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church is a united community empowered by the Holy Spirit by modeling ourselves on Christ in sharing our heritage, preparing for our future and promoting Christian values through service to God and neighbor.
Living as A Synodal Church
St. John’s Welcomes the Synod!
What is a Synod? First of all it’s a spiritual process led by the Holy Spirit. It’s a council of a church, assembly or meeting, usually convened to decide an issue of doctrine, administration or application.
Why a Synodal process and What is it’s purpose?
Pope Francis has invited everyone in the Church to embark on this journey together. Through listening and discernment rooted in the Holy Spirit, the entire People of God are being called to take part in this process-the synodal process-by which the Church deepens in understanding of her mission and looks towards the future.
As we proceed along the journey of the Synod, know that the goal is to discern how God calls us to walk forward together in a co-responsible way that is open to welcoming God’s inspiration over time.
More to come on the Synod. In the meantime reflect on how you see, feel, and dream about “Journeying together” in the Church.
Welcome to St. John the Evangelist, Hondo, Texas, parish website. This website will help to keep you informed on everything that happens at St. Johns. We as a parish community are committed to offer support to our parishioners in their journey as disciples of Christ. Our parish seeks to offer several opportunities to our faithful to learn, nurture and share the gift of faith in Jesus Christ.
Our Sunday Liturgy continues to remain a source of blessing in our faith journey. With the new decree from our archbishop removing dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and days of obligation, I encourage you all to join us in person for our weekend Masses. Our faith is sustained by our common worship and prayer at the Holy Mass and it continues to motivate our life of service and witness. May we as parish family honor the Sabbath and remain faithful to his commandment.
St. John’s remains grateful to all our parishioners who have been generous in their giving. Your sacrifice and commitment have sustained the work of the church. May I encourage you to continue to support the church through your offerings. In addition to weekly offerings at Mass, we have convenient online giving available. You may give online at https://www.givecentral.org/pew-card/941
or text the keyword SUNDAY to 830-218-1667.
I pray that you find love, care, warmth and above all spiritual growth being part of St. John's family. May the Lord bless you and your family.
